Eva Longoria is used to being behind the camera as a producer, but she recently went behind the scenes in a different way.
The 38-year-old actress recently recorded the voice of Isabel, a new character on “The Simpsons.”
Longoria recently told TV Guide, ‘I play Isabel, a new student who is finally Lisa’s intellectual equal. They become fast friends, and then things take a left turn when they realize they have different political views. This is a big stretch for me not only because it’s voice work, which I rarely do, but also I’m playing a Republican and I’m obviously a Democrat.”
Longoria has been a vocal supporter of President Obama since before he was elected in 2008.
“The Simpsons” is heading into its 25th season, making it the longest running animated comedy in U.S. history.
Over the years stars like Tito Puento, Lionel Messi, Ronaldo, George Takei, Sting, Stephen Hawking, Leonard Nimoy, U2, Nsync, Pete Sampras, and Jose Canseco have either voiced characters or appeared as themselves.
Other “Simpsons” news includes 20th Century Fox TV announcing it will be showing “never-before seen footage from guest director Guillermo del Toro” at San Diego Comic-Con.
